We are afraid the reviews were wrong it was SO much better. Patrick and Eric were the perfects hosts welcoming us as long lost friends. Helping to decant the luggage and offering us a much... More

Just everything about this place is brilliant, as soon as you drive in and see the garden and patio you can see you are going to have a good time. The rooms are excellent, beautifully decorated, comfortable & spotlessly clean - just as you see on the photos but bigger. Patrick and Eric make excellent hosts and it is obvious... More

Patrick & Eric have taken an old farmstead and turned it into a beautiful B&B. The rooms are spacious, elegantly decorated and very comfortable. During our stay Patrick & Eric were wonderful hosts - welcoming, attentive, and very informative. But you don’t want to visit Carpe Diem without seizing the day to enjoy the evening meal. Patrick began by engaging... More

The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. They served us a dinner that could not have been beaten anywhere. If you are in this part of Burgundy,... More
